Dentures Not a Solution if Tooth Loss
The result of the research conducted by the University of Adelaide seems to be rather debatable as it states that if people experience tooth loss, they do not have to use dentures, bridges and other possible implants. It all depends on the number of teeth left and the location of them as, according to the study, they may be enough to get the proper functionality of your oral cavity. Some dentists consider that this statement is completely wrong as if a person does not have all the needed teeth, then it may result in the problems with your digestive track.
The researchers are concentrated on improving the quality of life and achieving this result will not require having all teeth in your mouth. As a result, people do not need to spend so much money on restoration of all the teeth but just the necessary ones that could provide you with a feeling of a comfort while taking meals. Besides, researchers confirm that certain dentures are not needed at all if they do not play a crucial role in your digestive processes. The consequences of this research are rather crucial either for patients or dentists.
Dentists need to think of how to define where patients need these dentures or bridges or not. At the same time, dentists need to know how many teeth a patient needs and their location. Of course, this approach to dental health of patients will need an individualized approach to each patient.
Patients will be able to save money and to spend it on prevention measures that will stop the process of tooth loss. In this case, patients need to calm when having problems with tooth loss and consulting a dentist on this topic will help them take a decision whether dentures are needed or not.
